Popular American TV Show House Hunters to Feature Couple who Traded Dallas for Split

When American couple Sean and Neissa Gallahar met and fell in love in the Dalmatian city of Split, it was not only each other that they fell in love with. Eight years after meeting outside an ice cream shop in Split, the couple from Dallas, Texas now call the historical Croatian city home.

The pair, who run a Consulting & Project Management business for American Buildings from home, have had some visitors recently – the film crew from the popular American reality TV show House Hunters International. Sean and Neissa will feature in the next episode of the show which will be broadcast this Friday (6 September) in the US. The show tracks the Gallahar’s as they look to purchase a centrally located property in Split that can also accommodate a home office.

Croatia Week also caught with them to find out what they like and dislike about their new home.

How long have you been in Split and why Split? We are originally from Dallas, Texas and moved here 3 years ago. We moved to Split because we met and fell in love here.

What are the things you like about Split / Croatia? We like the people, our relationships we have here, our Church family, the food, weather and also the pace of life here.

Dislikes? The amount of paperwork at government offices and banks. Also Mexican food is missing in Split.

You mention the food, any favourite dishes? and how is the battle with the Croatian language going? Favourite dish would be Crni rižot (black risotto). I would say Level B1 for the language.

Friday’s episode of House Hunters International featuring the Gallahar’s and Split can be accessed via the show’s website.
